Johnny Ray Century
Saturday, September 7, 2019
The Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee brings you its 17th annual Johnny Ray Century benefitting the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's Disease. An initiative of the East Alabama Cycling Club, the century travels the quiet but often rough backroads of Lee, Chambers, and Randolph counties, following the famous 19th-century Central of Georgia spur. Riders cross the old railroad bed in Lafayette. The 105-mile century option takes riders into downtown Roanoke where Johnny Ray himself, its famed conductor, is believed buried. The 2019 event is back on the Alabama Backroads Series and features a new gravel route!
